    Great fun. Very educational, took 2 yr old son, liked large machinery but too young to appreciate the engineering behind it all. Loved bottle rockets & gigantic bubbles. £10 for annual pass good value

    15 January: Home to one of the best collections of rotative steam engines in the world. Also home to the Waterworks Railway, a tiny 2-foot gauge railway, which is London's only passenger steam railway

    Unique museum showcasing a unique contribution to London's Victorian growth. Working original engine room machines are dazzling.

    This pumping house was opened in 1838 to supply west London with clean water, and now houses a collection of early steam engines. The landmark Stand Pipe Tower is based on a Florentine bell tower.

    The steampunk exhibition looks small at first, but there's more items scattered around the halls.

    Take the kids to have a fun day playing with water and rideing on a steam train. The train only runs on Sundays though.
